Why Pet Tags are Important 

Our pets are dependent on us to keep them happy, comfortable, and safe: we feed them their favorite treats, give them unlimited snuggles, and take them on adventures. Their unconditional love and loyalty ensure us they will never stray away, until they do. Every so often, our loyal companions get a little too curious and new scents tempt them to wander beyond their comfort zone. According to American Humane Association, 10 million pets are lost in the US each year, with only 15% of dogs and 2% of cats that don’t have proper identification returning home. Shocking, right? A physical pet ID tag will make sure your pet has a way to make it home. 

Proper Pet Identification 

While there are many ways to ensure your fur baby returns home, high quality dog tags are by far the most efficient way to get them back. That’s right, even if your pet is microchipped. Pet ID tags are the first indicator that a pet has a home and can make a pet’s return home easier on them (and you)The chances of someone calling the number on your tag are higher than the chances of someone taking your pet to get its microchip scanned. Microchips are useful to small extent. Did you know:  

  • Microchips migrate from the neck to other parts of the body – making them hard to find and difficult to scan. 

  • There are competing microchip technologies out there, which means if your lost pet is taken to a vet for scanning there is a chance that the vet will not have a scanning device compatible with your pet’s chip.  

  • More often than not, pet owners fail to notify the chip company when they move – so often contact information is out of date.  

 At Quick-Tag, we believe a tag is more than a name and a phone number, it’s a ticket home.
